James Suckling Review
A beautiful, very tight red with currants, dark chocolate, black tea and roasted sea weed. Full body and tight, muscular tannins. It is really tightly wound. A beautiful follow up to the 2016. A blend of 58% cabernet sauvignon, 32% petit verdot and 10% malbec. Give it two to three years to open up. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
Always our finest effort and the flagship of Leonetti. The 2017 pours into the glass dark and foreboding. The nose instantly delivers jasmine and white flowers. A second smell and taste reveal tar, asphalt, cassis, bramble fruit, white fir, and dried florals. The palate is seamless with impressive length, polish, and a plush, delicious finish. I'm incredibly proud of this Reserve vintage. Enjoy now through 2050.
